Frequently Asked Questions


Where does d'Italia source its fabric from?
All our stock is imported from only Italy and France, as we believe these sources are superior in their manufacture of the finest quality fabric. We purchase from the most reputable manufacturers who create for the top European designer fashion houses – such as Gucci, Armani, Versace, Balenciaga, Prada, Dolce Gabbana, Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli, Escada, Valentino and Chanel… d’Italia’s stock includes these labels regularly.

Do you give out samples?
Yes, of course. Small strips are handed out freely, however many customers prefer to purchase 10cm strips as they provide a more true representation where a proper colour match or pattern is important. We extend this service to our interstate telephone/mail enquiries especially, however we do caution that time is of the essence when it comes to whether or not the fabric would still be available for sale in the short-term future.

Are your optional dressmakers/seamstresses/tailors/couturiers good and are they expensive?
Considering their work is of the highest standard, their prices are surprisingly reasonable and very much affordable. Due to an exclusive arrangement whereby d’Italia refers all customers them, these ladies deliberately work from their own professional studios (so there are no overheads here at d'Italia), so their fees are maintained at a very much lower rate than other quality seamstresses in Melbourne who are either on a salary or operating from a shop front.

When are appointments recommended?
Appointments are most welcome, and are encouraged for those who would like to be served with minimal interruptions or in complete privacy, or for those who have a busy schedule and can only make it here after 5pm. It is highly recommended especially for brides and bridal groups to book appointments, as it is more practical to have one of our staff members allocated to help them personally (rather than on-the-spot, without an appointment, on a busy Saturday morning for example).
